Verna's Art Travels

This post is from Verna R., who's been traveling and seeing some awesome art:

Joan and I visited the Wisconsin Artists Showcase (Jura Silverman Gallery) in Spring Green, Wis.  Lots of great stuff there, but Dave Bielot was my favorite.   He has a Facebook page, but not an actual web site, apparently.  

I pulled a few paintings below and you can see a couple more in these web sites. He is a high school art teacher and watercolorist.

Cezanne's Watercolors

You can dowload the entire text or read it online. Later in his life, Cezanne painted some wonderful watercolors, including Still Life with Blue Pot.
Here's the link:
